I'm really glad we got the lifetime while we could, the only annoyance is that I have to call them each year to get the online for free :\ they tell me it's included but the computers are not set up to recognize it .. whatever lol

I previously had 6 months all access + online for $54 +tax and fee. It was up on feb 28.

Yesterday, I called, and they would do the same, or alternatively, they would give me 1 year at 118.00 + taxes and fee, so my bill for 1 year was $140 + change all in. I have to phone back next Feb 24, 2020, cost me marginally more than double, but the small excess was worth putting off the call for a year. Includes all channels and online access, + Howard Stern, etc.

Expiring package: SiriusXM Select 6 Months promo at $36 + $5.11 "Music Royalty & Regulatory Fees" + HST = $46.45.

Called in to cancel today, but decided to accept a 1-year offer, (no 6-month plans were offered to me):

SiriusXM Select 1 Year = $87.56
Music Royalty & Regulatory Fee (14.2%) = $12.43
Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) = $12.94
Total = $112.93

It is of course more costly than I would have liked, but it will do for now I suppose.

Regular "1 year" price, as posted on SiriusXM website, is $241.18 (after adding fees & taxes), which is beyond ridiculous.

I called in on June 14, first guy wouldn't budge off $333.

After 5 minutes flipped to second guy.

He offered a one year package: SiriusXM All Access (includes all channels and online access) for $151 all in so I took it. (seemed fair to me)

My 6 month promo expires next month and I think I will probably cancel the service. My wife and I enjoy it but we are retired and on a fixed income and can’t really afford to pay full price. We only listen to a couple stations and probably not worth the money. If they offered me a decent 12 month promo I’d probably consider it if it was reasonable. I wonder if SiriusXM offers a senior discount ?

Another thing....I have a lifetime US subscription on an old portable radio in my old truck that it rarely use but the service is still active. I wonder if I could transfer that over to my car after the promo ends and I cancel next month ?
Just wondering.

That's a move in the right direction. The Essential Package is similar to the SiriusXM Select package but lacks all the sports as well as Howard Stern. I signed up for the 6 month $5/mo SiriusXM Select package promo and called to cancel when they wanted to increase it to $16.99/mo plus fees. When I told the CSR it was too expensive she just cancelled it. I haven't received any offers by email either. What a lame company. When I had the US SiriusXM they always gave me a discount offer. Just how much do they expect to get for streaming radio when the competition is often free. iHeartRadio and Pandora are US$5/mo. Livexlive (formerly Slacker) is about US$2-$3/mo.

... then $8 per month thereafter.
"A Music Royalty and Administrative Fee (MRF) of 10.2% of the subscription price and taxes apply." That makes it closer to $9 plus tax. I'll wait for the free preview or a better offer.

Does Sirius still offer a lifetime subscription? My buddy paid about $400 a decade ago, a one-time fee, and he still has it to this day. I tried looking online for the same offer but can't find any info on it.

...this is a signature...

All lifetime subscription sales were stopped several years ago. I think they were limited to the life of the radio before that.

Just did my obligatory annual call in. First csr could not/would not help, transferred to retentions, offered the streaming/car package for 150$, I said I had seen it online for 99$.

Then offered the car only package for 99$, I replied I had seen the car only package for 30$ for 6 months. I said I would not pay more than 60$ per radio for a year's service. They agreed.

Such a dance. Crazy practice.

That $60 quote may be subject to "Music Royalty & Regulatory Fees" of 14.2% + 13% HST.

Still, you're a better dancer than I was when I renewed back in March.
